Ingredients

  • 4 large Granny Smith Applies
  • 60 g of butter
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 210 degrees and line the base of a 20cm round cake tin with baking paper.
  • Peel and cut the apples into eighths.
  • Add the butter to a frying pan and warm over a medium to high heat before adding the apple pieces. Cook the apples for 4 - 5 minutes turning them every minute or two until they begin to turn a golden brown colour.
  • Remove the sheet of puff pastry from the freezer to allow it to thaw slightly before you need it.
  • Add the brown sugar and cinnamon along with 2 tablespoons of cold water.
  • Cook for a further 3 - 4minutes until the sugar has dissolved before reducing the heat to low and simmering for a further couple of minutes until the apples have turned a lovely dark brown.
  • Remove the frying pan from the heat and using tongs, carefully arrange the apple pieces over the base of the lined cake tin and spoon over the sugar syrup.
  • Cut a 22cm circle from the pastry and place it over the apples, carefully tucking the pastry edge in.
  • Place the cake tin into the oven and cook for 15 minutes or until the pastry has puffed up and has turned golden brown.
  • Remove the cake tin from the oven and allow the Apple Tarte Tatin to stand in the tin for 5 minutes before carefully turning it onto a plate to serve.
